If it were on zoom she wouldn't have to leave the house but that's not the case, she's going into a school on Tuesday. She's a bit disappointed she was hoping it was Monday so she has a reason to leave the house. Staying at home is driving her nuts

The Brexit vote was 4.5 years ago, Biden probably not last 4.5 years. This is a long term project so be prepared for a bumpy ride that will never end let alone within 4.5 years.
I know that's hard for a teacher to comprehend who can't look further than the next term

BTW my missus still says man up, she's going on a covid testing course on Tuesday

All the eggs in the wrong basket with the Trump love in wasn't it?

I'm pretty sure Biden said consistently that he thought Brexit was a bad idea for the UK so he's just doing what he said he would I guess. Imagine a politician that does that...

So what do we all make of Biden prioritising the US-EU trade agreements over the US-Britain trade agreements? Not going to contemplate it until 2022 according to the White House.

One lesson that should of been learnt , by all , this last year is , do not believe what Boris or our news papers tell you , to try and say Brexit is a success is beyond stupid , we will be sold down the river as Boris puts his bent mates above the needs of the population as proven on a daily basis last year !

I was wrong.

Looks like the UK gave in on the level playing field, and also on fishing.

Some things will be worse, but some things will stay the same. Top job. Well worh it. Well done everyone.

Deal to be announced later?

Have cobblers like 'vassal state' and 'rule takers' become a bit less important in the face of no deal? Giving ground on the level playing field in return for some movement on fishing that Johnson can sell as a massive win?

Fingers crossed.

Yes. It was a bit like privatising the British territory wasn’t it, the buyers being European once again. Like I said, plenty of misinformed out there that just believe the EU forced the British boats off the British waters when a majority just sold up.

I seem to remember it was not countries who paid for fishing rights it was individual families who have their hands in many pies.

I do not believe anything was actually sold to any government, just very rich families.

Could be wrong but I don’t think I am.

Oh and by the way this does make a difference, a massive one.

Not too sure mate, listen to the angry brexiteers saying how the EU is stealing all our fish and how they shouldn’t be allowed to fish here, even though they bought the right to.

Not getting into one of your tit for tats but no one said the EU forced their way in. It was an agreement made when we was in the EU.
My point is out of all the EU is was only Macron that was reported in saying he was going to veto, as Jon says he wants to gain votes in his own country.

a quick explanation of why the EU has a huge share of the fishing in British waters... if you don’t want to watch it, it’s because British fishermen SOLD their fishing licenses to European fishermen. Now tell me again how the EU forced their way in?

I think the level playing field concept is a much bigger deal for everyone.

Having said that, I've got to scroll down past 8 other stories before getting to brexit on the main Italian news site. I think much of the EU have lost interest.

Not entirely sure why fishing has become this HUGE issue. 0.1% of GDP. We export 65-70% of what is caught and import stupid amounts. But then it’s not about the economics of it, it’s about territory isn’t it and the fishing industry is the excuse.

I wonder where everyone stands on the EU work around quotas to save the declining populations of fish stocks? Is that being rejected snd removed come the 1st Jan?

So...

The EU - 'why don't we temporarily maintain the current fishing arrangement to aid both sets of fishermen whilst we seek to reach a further agreement..?'

Boris - 'Deploy the Navy. Get me some frigates!'

Thatcher had the Falklands, Blair had Iraq - and Boris is declaring war on Pierre's trawler...

What a tool.

According to Sky both of them were not allowed to, it doesn't show unity if they get involved without the 25 other leaders, especially Macron who's already said he'd be the only one to veto over fishing.

So the EU have offered the UK access to the single market with everyone having the same rules ... like now ... but if in the future the UK chooses to lower standards to undercut the EU, they will face some tariffs and obstacles to trade. Or ... no deal and have ALL the tariffs and obstacles to trade immediately with no deal.

Why opt for all the economic problems immediately rather than agreeing the deal and seeing how it goes?

Is anyone flogging scarves like the half and half football ones?

Half saying 'Great deal done - Get in!' with the other half saying 'No deal - Back of the net!'.

Whatever the outcome, the same people will be cheering.

Government gave out bad guidance and they should've known better because all previous governments got it right when faced with pandemics. I'm sure now we've left the EU all those who lent their votes to the Tories to get it done will take them back and the next government will have learned from the Covid mistakes so when the next pandemic comes along it will be risk free

I'd also add the deaths of innocent care home residents to boris and Co's list mind. ..

Not that I’m defending either side. But I don’t think the spunking of taxes compares to the deaths of innocent people in an illegal war

Both as bad in different ways. Blair with the war, bojo with giving his mates taxpayer money for nothing.

Bojo tips it because he’s just a puppet letting his masters run riot.

As the corruption levels rise , the voices against it need to be silenced , when did anyone hear about Assanges case last and the condemnation from civil rights groups about the kangaroo court ! i would class him as one of the best and most important reporters of the last 100 years !the lies and smears have been very similar to the smearing of Corbyn , good job Jezza didn't get in bed with a couple of hookers , a lot to be said about making jam and growing vedge on your allotment !

I covered over half of your copy n paste ,try to think as you read !

How will they let you down , this is what i think

They will say that there is strict control of immigration , will have to wait n see , but i very much doubt it

We will not regain outright sovereignty regarding our courts , workers rights , environment and animal welfare

We will not regain complete control of our fishing waters

There will be a hard border , with custom check's between Ireland and the UK

There will be a deal and Boris will capitulate , your bullsh** feeds will say a great Boris victory ,they don't care , their agenda has been achieved !

Having standards isn't imposing conditions though. Unless you're suggesting that our default setting is going to be having lesser standards than the EU - which doesn't bode well for our chances in a competitive market as a new, independent 'business'

If that makes sense...

Apologies for an attempt at proper discussion. I'll get back to the sarcasm soon no doubt

Just been listening to the news and it seems there will be a 3 month 'Grace period' (not a transition period which is what the last 11 months of no progress has been i think) where NI won't have to meet EU tariffs.

This will then create the 'border in the Irish sea' that has been widely discussed. And a disparity in the rules among the devolved nations.

All going swimmingly. ...

That's what happens when you let Gove be in charge of something. Bloody

Playing devils advocate here...

Making our own rules and regulations is seen as a positive. But surely these will have to meet standards agreed by the EU for successful trade to flourish. So we will have control of making regulations that need to meet expectations of the EU? Wouldn't it have been simpler to just be part of the group that agrees these?

Just pointing out the huge flaw in point 2. If we can't make up our own laws, how the hell did we legislate to leave the EU then?

Guess it must have been a cunning plan from those pesky forriners in Brusssels, eh?

I could do the same with every single point you make but I just don't have the will, time or energy.

I really do hope your life will be better from the 1st of January. Don't be surprised when it's not.

I try to stay away to keep my blood pressure low, Bob...... and because I gave up any hope of changing minds a long time ago. As I also said a long time ago, if Brexit is a wonderful thing, I will be the first to say I was wrong as no-one will be affected in a negative way. All the evidence says otherwise, though.

Ports already slowed down. Leading Brexiters such as Dyson moving his business out of the UK and Jim Radcliffe (INEOS) deciding to build his new car in France, rather than Bridgend because building it in France has a better business case.

Bob, 'making a list' and 'copy and pasting a load of old waffle' are two separate things.

I asked for some real-world tangible benefits for your life, to offset the real-world tangible disadvantages for my life, and make me feel better about it.

It's like the Covid situation - I'm 50% down on my earnings this year, that's the negative result of restrictions - but the positive result of the restrictions is that more of my friends' parents aren't dead. So fair enough, it's bad for me, but good for other people, so I can accept the situation.

4 years ago the potential Brexit advantages were huge if you believed people like David Davies - there was a great deal coming, only advantages, blah blah blah. Now the situation is very different. It's like that Noel Edmonds game ... 4 years ago all sorts of wonderful prizes seemed possible. Now we know there are 2 boxes left, and it's either 50p or bugger all, but folk are still jumping up and down clapping like they've won a speedboat. I'd love to know why.


For the staunch supporters of points-based immigration ... you do realise that today's British lawyers with Polish cleaners will inevitably become Indian lawyers with British cleaners, don't you?

Not another one ,
So , when things go very wrong for a political group economically , what is their "get out of gaol " card , come on it's not hard ?

Lets blame it on the immigrants , it's gone on for eternity !

How do we get them to vote for brexit ,hmmm , lets tell them that everyone from Turkey is coming here !

Why not do a simple search , how many children does a women need to have to sustain an economy = 2.1 the last time i looked the average uk women was having 1.65 , the lowest ever recorded in the uk , it's called the fertility rate and is widely covered by economists , so , who fills the void , immigrants .

Will our government stop immigration after brexit , no , it has just served it's purpose and their ideology , just the reporting of migration will stop leaving the idiots to feel warm n fuzzy , you have been had , yet again !

A few facts for the racists ! 93% of people claiming job seekers allowance are british born

In 2015 , 4.9 people born in the UK were living abroad , the largest number from any EU country

EU migrants contribute 34 % more to our economy than they take out in handouts ,

Try to engage your brains before you make a decision , i can tell it's hard , but don't believe everything that your racist sites tell you !

That’s your opinion spanky.......means **** all, just like most of the ***** you post IMO....... Do you care to tell me what parts were incorrect in your opinion of course!!!

Notalot......we joined a club all those years ago to make trading between member countries easier and without taxes etc.......We did not join what it has evolved into today! Secondly, You need to add EU immigration to that list too!! Since 1997 when Blair took over immigration to the UK has caused massive issues, Allowing 5 million extra into the country without major investment at the same time for schools, Hospitals because him and Brown were on the scrounge and spending money on boys clubs and wars we need not have got involved in.......

Corrupt to the very core is that red Army and it left the Blue army to try and pick up the pieces along with their / There / They're own corruption of course......

Just for you spanky...........Oh and Jon who is still talking to his dog!!!!

We are taking back control of borders with a points based system of immigration so no more scrounging ****ers bleed us dry.
We can start making our own laws and regulations to match.
A British regulatory framework will be able to better exploit the fourth industrial revolution and avoid EU protectionism.
Controlling trade policy, leading to new and better agreements such as the Japan FTA and joining the CPTPP.
An independent sanctions and human rights regime separate to and more progressive than the EU’s.
Taking back control of fishing waters and exclusive economic zone.
Replacing the wasteful anti-environmental Common Agricultural Policy.
More accountable political system. Direct Parliamentary accountability. Politicians no longer hiding behind EU rules.
A new state aid regime that is responsive and in keeping with free market principles, but also that support the agenda of levelling up.
New freeports.
Taking back control of the £20 billion currently controlled by the EU every year to spend on UK priorities instead of a big piss up for Merkel and her mates.

Happy days.....Boris and Nige were spot on........

You still dangling that bait hoping for a run.

If you want a good cross section of the mood in the UK at the moment then see if you can get todays Jeremy Vine show on catch up. A good cross section and more representative than the same old faces on here

Wayne, I could list them to you but it would be like telling my dog the Periodic Table.

We tried the 'words that look different to how they sound' game, didn't we? Best you could manage was 'All ways' instead of 'Always' ... I'm sure there's some online colouring you can do, or lots of petitions you can sign saying how Donald was robbed, anti vaxx, 5G making us poorly etc etc .. but please don't expect me to engage in a serious conversation with you.

I'm sure the contents of that list is somewhere in this thread and all the ones that are now deleted, bring it up again if there's an appetite but it never got either side anywhere in my opinion. We are where we are it's up to the negotiators and politicians now.

Hi Andy I've not seen you on this these type of threads for a while I hope you are keeping well.

Someone from either side will say something and the other side will jump on it.
In my opinion let the conversation flow, asking for lists is asking multiple conflicts, I don't know about the others but after 4.5 years on this forum it's got us nowhere

WUM. You voted for it, you own it. Good job l don't run a business, cos if l had to shed jobs, those who voted for it would be first out the door. Seeing as you knew exactly what you voted for and any economic pain would be worth it and all that.

Over 70% of the total land in the UK is currently used for agriculture. For a total output of 0.6% GDP its a pathetic use of this resource whilst stacking them high in brownfield covid-19 friendly towering infernos.

Depends on how you want to read the figures.
Had some of those 238 Labour MP's voted for it (only 3 did) then they may of got a 'deal' (I'm not anal enough to think it matters what wording you use to describe) I've not checked but my guess is those 3 MP's kept their seats whereas many of the 238 lost theirs. I wonder how many of those 238 wished they had voted for it now no deal is looming.

There's been so many Brexit threads on here, some were so old they've been deleted, lots has been said but very little has changed so I'm going to use my 'you can have the last word' for time being.

@Mal I can understand why people want to remain
@Jon Maybe I don't think this a **** show?

You're right. I don't understand a mindset that sees being part of a consensus (which is what the fishing situation was) as being 'under control'

But I'm an old hippy who thinks sharing is good - maybe brexiters can't understand my mindset eh?

It was the Leavers that voted May's deal (which wasn't a trade deal) down.

It's beginning to look like that not only did you not know what you voted for, you also don't know what they voted for either.

Whatever it was they kept on voting no, so May stepped down, Boris took over, called an election and Joe Average was so fed up with it and wanted it done they lent him their votes and we are where we are now, a large majority.

That's what I was trying to get at. The remainers done their best to scupper and the result could be a no deal which is last the thing they wanted.

@Mal
You are right about the GDP figures but for many Brexit was to do with EU control and the fishing rights are part of that. If you are pro EU you won't understand that mindset.

Listening to the radio this morning on the fishing issue. (Maybe shorten it to The fissue? - only a matter of time...)

0.12 per cent of GDP - less than the lawn mower industry. Less than Harrods. ..

It's entirely political posturing.

Talk of the effect on fishing communities is just another whitewash. Those Scottish communities who were sold down the river and as a nation voted remain...

But hey ho. It's a great reason to get all huffy about those bloody foreigners eh? No matter the huge knock on effect if it all goes tits up over this because we have to protect 'our fish'

So...

1 month to go. Ad campaign telling businesses to prepare. Business owners respond quite rightly with the question 'for what?'

A deal? No deal? Any detail at all?

Boris planning to bring back the internal market bill that breaks international law...?

I bet his local late night garage is looking forward to seeing him at half eleven on Christmas Eve when he turns up to buy all his presents for this year.

Very good analogy Wayne.

The UK was like an employee ... One of the most important directors, with the best office, the nicest car and the cushiest contract in the firm.

Now you've told the employer to stick it because you want to start up your own window cleaning round. On a bike. But you'll be pedaling for hours because you've told all your neighbours to bugger off.

'Cos a posh bloke told you to.

No news recently, so the chances are they'll announce some sort of 'deal' soon, after a couple of weeks talking in the background.

It'll be worse all round for the likes of you and I, but the brexit headbangers will celebrate it as a victory - as will the anti-UK factions within the EU. Daft sods.

Queues of up to 7k trucks and lots of lovely new lorry parks? ... Good news for the local burger van owners

But I'm supporting China because their people are good people and need our help. They will need it now we are dumping Huawei.
It wasn't their fault we got the disease it was their government that spread it, it's part of their global take over.
When the Poundland goods break after 5 minutes we can buy it again and we can dump the plastic in the sea, everyone else does it

The eventual rejoining the EU, but with none of the opt-outs the UK enjoys now?

Give it ten years, Brexit will be like the Iraq war. All Johnson and Farage's idea that no-one will admit supporting, let alone voting for.

Anyone still looking forward to it from a real, practical or business point of view?

JIT supply chains looking dodgy. Red tape for exporters set to rocket. No healthcare in the EU for Brits (and lots of insurance won't cover existing conditions, unlike the EHIC card) etc etc etc.

I'd imagine the good folk of northern France are quite looking forward to doing a roaring trade in confiscated boilies and inflatable boats for anyone who fancies escaping the EU for England...

No doubt lots of the financial hit will be blamed on Covid-19, but it'll be hard to blame a massive lorrypark full of trucks waiting for customs on a virus.

What's the view of 'no deal' in light of the Covid situation?

Surely there are going to be enough economic problems without adding insult to injury and making stuff dearer with no deal? ... or has nothing changed?

Sorry to hear that scozza.

Unfortunately it's not corporate bull. .. it's the economic consequence that loads of business leaders said would be the case. Not unfounded scaremongering when the people who warned it would happen are the ones who will now make it happen to try and keep their business afloat. ..

Hopefully you'll find something. I hear boris is looking for 20000 coppers to replace the 20000 coppers that we lost over the last few years. maybe your missus could put a word in for you.

what a strange thing to say’ i don’t own patriotism or brexit. i am patriotic and have been most of life’ apart from a few times after disappointment. One disappointment recently was’ the old corrupt parliament’ that like flakey remainers held up brexit proceedings.
I voted brexit’ i don’t own it unfortunately.
as i posted earlier’ i mix with all types, and many say what they think. i’m a fan of people being able to state their opinions’ without the snow flakes jumping on them.

No need to worry, unlucky mate. Fromage can get you a start on a British trawler for sure. Boris could get you a start in a pork pie or kipper factory. Lizz Truss can surely get you a start in the Somerset cheese industry, maybe Spud picking in Norfolk. If you fancy Cornwall, plenty of money to be earned cleaning caravan's

Good old Brexit. The business I currently work for has announced its reviewing its European operations today and the cash conversion cost with England pulling out and the expected impact on the exchange rate it can not sustain its position. I love the corporate bull****. In summary that means we’re out of here soon, followed by a load of others too no doubt

****s. Not to worry we will be alright in around 10 or 15 years time when it’s all settled down

You don't "own" patriotism because of the way you voted in a binary referendum Mook. You just own the consequences. Unless you're peddling something more sinister?

Hi Ken
Not a troll at all , I just see things a lot different than others.
Like you I’ve watched , read , everything about conflicts, even more so WW1 and 2.
Everything is a total mess regarding the EU .
Our country has been invaded by stealth , the divisions are a gaping hole .
I just see history repeating itself over and over again .
I will go more in depth when I have a bit more time to clarify my assumptions .

I do talk to others who have a similar assumption as mine with even more drastic views than mine .
Nothing is going to get better only worse .
We have come no further as a species than caveman times and that’s worrying .

what i regularly display on here is my patriotism and belief in my country to hold their own’ not propped up by europe or anybody else. you trying to portray me in a way that is both racist and bigotry’ is because i have opposing views to you’ like many others that have posted here.
the reamainers lost’ stop being a bad loser and try and give it a chance’ just like me. brexit could make or break my businesses. the businesses are varied so it’s difficult to predict how they’ll fair. we had numerous debates about it’ some who knew i was a leaver strongly disagreed’ the majority though’ after a lot of thought it a good option.
none of us have a crystal ball’ i do have faith and passion though. i’m too old to see if things flourish for the country’ unless it happens really quickly. if i’m around to see it possibly fail’ i’ll take that on the chin too. i don’t know your age but i’m sure if you were around and aware of the country when we were independent’ you would have a lot more faith and belief in brexit.

you need to get used to racism and other culture differences though, it will never go away, in fact from what i’ve seen it’s getting worse. you don't have to agree with it or like’ just be aware it’s not going away.
If this country was full of al’l and only black people’ with a single culture and religion’ or only asian people with one religion and culture’ or only white people with a single religion and culture’ you will never here of racism in that country. maybe homophobia’ or semitism’ and sexist and ageist’ no racism though.
however past governments through all kinds of actions’ decided we would be multi racial and multi cultural.
unfortunately it hasn’t worked’ they know and we all know it but’ many are trying to stamp it out which i admire but’ can’t help thinking it’s a pointless exercise.
i meet people from all walks of life’ and the majority of them’ once theyfeel confident make many racist statements and comments. i mean people of poor upbringing a bit like me’ right up to the mega rich’ they all sing the same song.
i have been subject to racism too. one example was a few years ago we needed some big pots and steamers for a function. i was told about an indian wholesaler that would stock them. me and two colleagues
Visited the place’ the whole town and cash and carry were indians only. we were the only whites’ we walked in and were stared at like we were outlaws. we found the pots and pans, and asked somebody behind the counter the price. None of them were speaking english’ so we asked them to speak english. it got really nasty after that’ what are you people doing here’ theres nothing for your sort here’ in english, they told us we were the wrong colour. then they mumbled in their language. a woman came from the back and asked what we wanted’ i was tempted to just walk out but’ we needed the pots. she did us a deal and half apologised saying the men thought we were robbers.
Once we got out of there’ obviously relieved, a colleague said’ just imagine what would happen if a gang of white blokes treated three indians like that.
that’s one of a few examples’ if you want to start shouting about racism’ maybe look at it from all races. you don’t hear much of whites being racially abused’ as they laugh it off and don't make it a big deal. my staff have warned some foreign employees about spitting and blowing snot on the floor. often they threatened with the race card.
so do me a favour’ preach elsewhere.

i encourage my students to ask questions. then i encourage them to ask more and seek out as many viewpoints as possible. it's simple. that way they can widen their viewpoint rather than have them narrowed by propaganda. i challenge bigotry / racism / homophobia etc. as that's an important part of my job, but i never replace their viewpoint with mine.

as for you not agreeing with my views, then i'm relieved. given what you regularly display on here I'd be the one that was worried if i felt that we were aligned in our opinion....

tinhead - fair point. but i could still be on to something....

i find it quite worrying that you are a school teacher’ as you have plenty of time to influence innocent youngsters with your views’ most of which i’m sure i wouldn’t agree with. i bet you take on the roll as part teacher part politician’ giving your opinions as fact and correct.
as for my business’ i have very little to do with the running of them’ or hiring and firing. i do know the amount of money these racial conflicts cost the businesses though.
some take sick leave because of stress waiting for court dates, full pay and benefits obviously’ from the company kitty. then managers and supervisors are often called as witnesses. it’s problems like this that are not good for any business.

reading your post - and between the lines - something struck me in your comment

' i want to point out that i employ a lot of people at various companies. there is a big mix of race, culture and religion’ and it has generally not worked and caused many problems.'


Given your apparent attitude toward a mixed society, perhaps you should look at the common denominator in your statement. It's little surprise that it hasn't worked if you are the employer there...


Can I refer you to my earlier post - number 1141?

The last few years has shown me how many flakey peopl there are in the uk. since brexit a few days ago’ i have heard many saying racism will increase, and cultural conflicts will also get worse. i don’t know how true that is, none of us do’ but many will see the country making its own rules’ and controlling borders as racist’ and relevant to culture.
I don’t think racism will ever cease’ no matter what country we’re in’ and despite the government claiming we are multi cultural, which we might well be’ it clearly doesn’t work. We are not all meant to inter mingle and embrace each others culture and religion, and the majority of the time’ the majority of us does not and never will.
If we all came back on earth in 500 years time, if man hasn’t killed it by then’ there would be racism and culture conflict, as long as there are different cultures and races in a country, it will exist’ and the smalker the country’ the worse it becomes.

before i get labelled a racist or bigot again, i want to point out that i employ a lot of people at various companies. there is a big mix of race, culture and religion’ and it has generally not worked and caused many problems.
Some of the racists are white born and bred british, some are asian immigrants, some are black immigrants and many white eastern europeans. there doesn’t seem a main race that they target, it just random, and its got worse every year.
a solution might be for me to only employ one race and religion but’ then i’m the racist. People are interviewed’ and if suitable are offered jobs, no favours or prefs.

the main reason i voted out of the EU because of the numbers pouring in, if that doesn’t stop’ then we will never make any steps forward.
the comments from remainers saying their future and kids future’ is ruined by something they did not vote for.
thats ********. i remember before we joined, the country was better then’ it had substance and respect. many of us had it forced on us, and we endured 47 years of **** and being treated as such’ lost all of our industry and everything else, the had to let a lot people in, coming from terrible countries’ wanting some of our nice little island, that soldiers fought and died for, and what our ancestors worked so hard for’ to make it a great country.
now look at it’ an overcrowded angry racist ****hole.
the flakey negative remainers need to have a bit of faith and stop bleating like scared little lambs’ and have a bit of spirit like our ancestors did.
another thing i notice now, is the people bleating have interests in europe, some have property there, and some that voted don’t even like in the uk. they have just been getting fat too long on their europe ties, whilst the uk is getting worse by the day. shame on those people’ selfish *******s.
we’re out now, so all the little lambs need to get used to it’ or piss off to europe and create space for us that live here and believe in our country.

Fred: I have met you and really enjoyed your company. You were a great laugh for the week we fished together and Tat and I had a superb time. Funnily enough you showed no signs then of your hidden internet trolling abilities You kept them well hidden!

Just thank your lucky stars you are not a political reporter trying to get some semblance of truth rather than lies out of this government.

The Dom and Lee show has begun...Did you ever see such a nasty looking pair of enforcers (sorry : Advisors!) Free speech...Yer arse!

I am not so worried about Bexit (it's over...get used to it) as I am about the increasing Nazification of this great country of ours. Never have I know such hatred and division. I did European history 1850-1950 for my O Level and from what I recall (it was a long time ago) the attitudes and divisiveness in the UK today shows a remarkable similarity to Germany in 1933 onwards. It leaves a very nasty taste in the mouth. I'll hopefully be dead before the full impact of Brexit and 10 years of this buffoon will become clear. Thank God for that.

I think the British could learn something from the French to be honest. Once it was obvious Brexit was a massive stitch up which would only benefit Rees-Mogg, Farage and the like, the French would have well and truly kicked off. None of this marching through London with witty and grammatically correct placards nonsense.

Can’t help thinking that during WW2 the vast majority of today’s thick, fat, knuckle-dragging morons who claim to be patriots would’ve been in Portsmouth jeering and screaming at British troops heading to Europe to fight to help foreigners. Bleedin’ do-gooders, eh?

Typical remain attitude , more like French than British .
Scared and cowards just like WW2 and only a handful of resistance with guts who did not give up .

Jesus wept 😞
Why don’t you sell up and go forth to euro land and continue with your love fest of the dictatorship, when actually it’s Germany ruling by stealth .

Er..... I don't think so. Why should nearly half the population of the country own something they don't want or didn't vote for?
See, this is the difference. If I'm wrong, I'll be pleased to be wrong. If I'm right this will be a cluster**** of the highest order, I won't celebrate that.
Leavers philosophy seems to be happy to **** things up for the other half of the country. So when the people with a pigmentation problem don't go, when the schools are still full, when you can't see your gp or get a hospital appointment any quicker, when wages don't rise, when the trade deals which make the country better off, don't materialise, you and the others who voted for that own it. All of it.

Let's be clear.

There's no practical change after last night. It was a political milestone but Brexit is by no means 'done'

The process of it starts now and it won't be simple. It also won't be regular folk like us that do it, whether we come together or remain divided. It's in the hands of the Conservative party now. Not parliament but the conservative party as they have that huge majority.

All we can do is get on with our day to day and respond to the consequences

Good luck all

Grammar police, feel free to point out my mistakes’ i genuinely need pointers.
so brexit has definitely happened, or at least we’ve taken the first main step of it’ and i’m very happy for lots of reasons. those that are not happy’ i would just suggest’ to try and come to terms with it and give it a chance, we all have to whether we voted for it or not.
The uk started going down the toilet around 35 years ago’ so although very late in the day’ this is a step to try and get it turned into something respectable again.
My previous relatives’ like a lot of people gave their lives for our freedom’ i finally am starting to feel like i might be free again’ and belong to a country instead of a dustbin.

I wonder which country is the next to get out of the EU?

If anyone has watched “Travels in Euroland with Edd balls” it’s not looking very promising for the EU project, everybody and their dog has turned against it, even Edd who was a staunch supporter of the EU when he was a Labour MP admits it looks like it’s doomed.
It’s worth watching, bit of an eye opener- there’s literally “No Go Zones” in most German cities now, 90% rise’s in crime.

Woke up this morning and guess what the sky is still there

Drove down the M20 today and couldn't see a single queue of lorries and traffic is still moving would you believe it

Now the grammar police are out, oh my god your argument for remain has impressed me so much i want to change my vote. Its just like the Labour party insult, be little and ostracise those with a different opinion will always turn them towards your point of view.

Could have/could of ... 25 year olds

If anything positive can be taken from the last few years, it's that we shouldn't beat around the bush. Thank goodness for the demise of political correctness. Let's call a spade a spade, and a thick **** a ****, eh?

Hi Jon,

There you go again with the insults.
You really can't help yourself can you?
Is it because you think it's witty and amusing?
Constantly trying to ridicule someone who is polite to you seems to me to be smug narcissism.
I don't intend to waste any more of my time on this thread.

Ah.... the 'are' / 'our' mistake. Right up there with 'could of' / 'could have' ....

I've wasted so much red ink on those little mishaps. It's way more common than you might think. Like male pattern baldness and sense of humour failure...

So Brexit has got done. I don't feel any wealthier / more secure in my job / safer in my home / confident that there'll be a nurse available if I get ill.... Maybe project total and utter b*llocks overstated things....

Have seen some Brexit supporters on TV over the days news. More of the usual xenophobic pish and even some flag burning which was nice. Not necessarily a positive advert for our future but hey ho.

I thought there was a poignant moment during farage's final MEP rant when they simply turned his mic off so they didn't have to listen to him (if only that worked in everyday life). It summed up very simply and succinctly what we are now facing - those other countries don't have to listen to us if they don't like what we are saying now. Could make for an interesting few months of negotiation...

Blimey, I waited for a reply, gave up and logged out.

Then I came back, by chance, and you'd replied ... Grrreat .... the point is, the original question was ... what are the benefits of leaving the EU?

You've won ... surely you're knocking one out over Anne Widdecombe's speech by now?

Hi Jon,

What's the point in my posting to you?
All you do is post ridicule and insults..
How do you expect me to take you seriously?
If your intention is to just annoy me, then it falls on deaf ears, because abuse is meaningless nonsense and anyone with insight would see it says more about you than it does of me.

I'm sorry....

Not understanding the difference between 'are' and 'our' is perfectly normal and certainly not a sign that anyone is thick.

Butterbean just happened to be too busy to reply to me in the last half hour (maybe nanny was ready with his special tea Towel to mop up the Eton Mess, come the hour).

Good luck!

Hi Wayne,

As you can see, Jon's post below has just confirmed my earlier post in that, they don't answer direct questions and just post insults.
You would think that he would realise that replying with sarcasm and insults is meaningless and destroys any credibility he might have and that of his opinions.
It seems to me, the further left these people go, so does their intellect diminish in direct proportion.
If you follow US politics, you see this trend with the more leftist democrats.

(Reuters) - PSA Group's (PEUP.PA) will build a battery cell factory in Kaiserslautern, Opel Chief Executive Michael Lohscheller said on Thursday, in a step which creates 2,000 jobs at a site which is heavily dependent on making parts for combustion-engined cars.

"We will build the largest plant for battery cells in Germany in Kaiserslautern. Together with our Partner Saft we are making an investment in the billion euro range that will lead to the creation of 2,000 jobs. By doing so, we are building a true giga factory," Lohscheller said in a statement on Thursday.

Cutting out the inefficient and investing billions to create new better jobs for the future economy I'd say.
